ESPN also ignored those soccer titles won by the Chicago Fire. (The WNBA’s Chicago Sky made it to the finals in 2014.)

CBS quickly apologized for the error. And Twitter pointed out that the White Sox also played in the World Series in 1959, but the follow-up tweet was simply correcting the last time Chicago hosted a World Series.MORE NEWS: View Live Radar
